Removing a navigation bar

By ddvorpahl ·
I have a 550MHZ IBM clone with 384MG of ram, 4 harddrives,60,60,40,30GIG. I have a navigation bar on the left of my computer screen in Windows XP that shows Folder Tasks, Other Places, and Details. I cannot remove the bar, modify size or do anything with it. I also can't get into explorer. My computer seems a bit slower also. I can access the internet, run programs & function. I went to Microsoft but their solution, as usual to solve all problems, is to reinstall the operating system (Win XP). I have several programs on my computer and this would take a lot of time. Any other solution?

Hi, Click Start -> Run...
Write "msconfig", a program called "System configuration Utility" will appear. Go to the Startup tab. Uncheck all the programs that you don't want it to run at WIndows starting including this navigation bar you took about.Press okay and restart the Windows. Every think will be okay. Don't forget to rate me.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help. I ended up final repairing the program via Microsoft. Cost me $35.00 but they walked me through the repair. Also found out a possible cause of this is Fix-It 4.0. It may be compatible with XP but when you run the Registry fixer it messes something up.
